I don’t usually write youtube comments because it’s almost always useless, but I felt it was necessary to point out — to the people complaining about Haruma being cast as Eren — that race shouldn’t matter if the actors are good.
People should realize that AOT is a Japanese franchise. It’s not “reversed white-washing” even if the storyline is “european”.
Look, if every single story should be enacted exactly the way it was written and played by actors who represent the characters exactly, life would be so boring.
Romeo and Juliet, OK. Written by an englishman, set in Italy, characters are english-speaking italians. We can still enjoy the oh-so-many-versions of it. On stage, on screen, in so many different languages and played by people from different countries.
Aaaaand lastly, look at Haruma! He is gorgeous! Forget about what race he is. People should be happy that a sexy, good-looking, experienced actor is portraying Eren.
I mean just look at dat face yawl….
